Visit by Turkey's Erdogan boosts Venezuela's Maduro

Magnificent future for Turkey and Venezuela Maduro Erdogan defies Trump, calls Maduro Bolivar

Following his talks with Erdogan, Maduro headed to Moscow for talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin, slated for Wednesday, according to the Kremlin.

During a joint press conference with Erdogan later on Monday, Maduro defended his country's right to export gold after U.S. sanctions last month targeted its shipments of the metal.

According to Maduro, he was planning to hold "a very intense and very important meeting" with Putin later on Tuesday.

During another press conference later Monday, Maduro downplayed allegations from Washington that this sort of trade was illegal.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Monday criticised sanctions on Venezuela during a visit to Caracas, the capital.

Critics blame two decades of socialist rule, corruption and mismanagement for destroying Venezuela's once-thriving oil industry under the state-run PDVSA.

"Turkish investors will continue to develop and strengthen trade and the progress in oil production and refineries, petrochemicals for gold production, in diamonds, coltan, iron aluminum and tourism", said the Venezuelan president. "We have strong potentials in our economic relations with Venezuela", Erdogan said.

The 36-year-old had been admitted to hospital with heart failure , but died during his first week of treatment. One week later, he died from complications of heart failure.


The Turkish leader also condemned the economic sanctions that Maduro faces since 2017.

"Trade restrictions and sanctions are wrong", Erdogan said, warning that such measures would only deepen "instabilities".

"Political problems can not be resolved by punishing an entire nation", said the Turkish head of state.

Russian Federation and Venezuela enjoy a long history of ties and Maduro's predecessor Chavez, known for his passionate tirades against the United States, was a welcome guest at the Kremlin.

Maduro said there was an interest on the Turkish part in joint investments of over 4.5 billion euros.

Maduro told Putin he was sure their talks would bring "good news for cooperation between our countries and for the economies of our countries".

Massive inflation and a shortage of basic commodities such as foodstuffs and medicine have forced an estimated 2.3 million Venezuelans to immigrate to other South American countries.
